How Not To Fall In Love

It was an empty embrace, meant more to comfort than to love. You saw what you wanted, and I saw what I wanted, but we couldn't see what it wasn't or was.

It wasn't lust that held you against me.
It was desire that made you her.

Your kisses froze on my cheek like tears on rough winter mornings. I dared not cry, silently sinking lower into the depths of my shame. I have no place to hide.

Apply Your Heart

You will forego devotion.
All you have to do is
step onto
the path
of love.

"what do you know of home
when you find yourself
in a new place
every morning?
I shall relinquish
the warmth of
your memories
erased in my mind.
This is what
I've become.
Crying 'help'
in the recesses
of my heart."

In One Night

"Quiet" says the voice
"quiet, and listen.
Hear the beating of his heart.
Can you tell apart the ache from the desire?
Or are you just keeping time
to the rhythm of his pulse?"

Fathers and Widows

Like a father to impress
Like a Mother's mourning dress
If we ever make a mess
I'll do anything for you.


I did everything for you. Everything. For You.
